The Saturday Cartoons

It's a big day for the Saturday Cartoons… Our historic week and the election of President-elect Obama -- love that new title -- has made our cartoonist friends so prolific this week that I'm running more 'toons than I ever have.

In addition, I am delighted to announce that Bill Sanders has joined our line-up after graciously giving me permission to run his work.

A retired political cartoonist for the Milwaukee Journal and King Features Syndicate, Bill has produced thousands of editorial cartoons and appeared in over 200 newspapers and magazines. He has been featured in Newsweek Magazine and on CBS, NBC, National Public Television and Radio and BBC of London.

Thanks to Bill for his generosity… Please pay a visit to his web site and take a look at his latest book "Whopperland II The Last Chapter," which examines the long-awaiting departure of George W. Bush.

And now, on with the cartoons.

The Onion scares us this week with two pieces… The first shows what our future may hold in "Voting Machines Elect One Of Their Own As President."

And are we all really… this bad?

Thanks to all who have come to visit from other sites -- I'm glad you're here. But please know that this blog is about far more than the Saturday cartoons. They're merely a diversion and provide a humorous take on what's really on our minds. I primarily cover the U.S. Senate but also write about presidential politics and White House activities as well. So please take a look around beyond the 'toons -- and come back soon.
